JAPAN

ABV: 46%
Almost unknown outside of Japan, Kirin's Single Grain is produced at the Fuji Gotemba distillery, opened in 1973 and owned by the Kirin Group. As iconic locations go, it's hard to beat this distillery's picturesque environ. The water source is rain and melted snow from the top of Mount Fuji. Maturation typically takes place in x-Bourbon barrels, and the focus here is on grain whisky.

Released in February 2015, and produced via continuous still distillation followed by a second distillation in a kettle / doubler, this very rare 25 year old was bottled non-chill filtered at 46% ABV. One bottle only to sell.
